    Iran: We will never develop nuclear weapons

    I'm liking this guy... at least via comparison to his predecessors.

    Iran's president Rouhani: We will never develop nuclear weapons

    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told NBC News on Wednesday that the country will never develop nuclear weapons and that he has the clout to make a deal with the West on the disputed atomic program.

    “In its nuclear program, this government enters with full power and has complete authority,” Rouhani told Ann Curry, NBC News national and international correspondent and anchor at large, in his first interview with a U.S. news outlet since his election.

    “The problem won't be from our side,” he said at the presidential compound in Tehran. “We have sufficient political latitude to solve this problem.”

    “We consider war a weakness. Any government or administration that decides to wage a war, we consider a weakness. And any government that decides on peace, we look on it with respect to peace.”

    Because for thousands of years, we've gotten nothing but truth, integrity, and peace from this refined, sophisticated, and exemplary region of the earth.

    It's not like our region of the Earth has been a bastion of peace and understanding.

    Oh, good gawd, here we go.

    America is a cat fight compared to that abortion of cultural inferiority in the Middle East. They've evolved at the pace of the common cockroach.

    I'm really hoping the guy is for real, and is representative of a good number of Iranians.

    I don't actually believe for second that Iran wouldn't build nuclear weapons. But I do hope that this president's commitment to peaceful use of nuclear technology will keep anyone from actually firing nukes at anyone. We shouldn't be fooled, but we should be hopeful.

    I'm with you. Unfortunately, deception is a part of politics and even if this one man is sincere there is nothing to stop a subsequent leader from acting differently.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.
